This illegal heartless episode is only the tip of an ugly iceberg. Inadequate medical conditions, horrible concrete enclosures, sawdust on concrete floors, woefully filthy stalls warrant closure of all shelter facilities in Belfast & a recall of the BCC!

I'm wondering exactly who would launch an investigation into the lies, corruption and fraud involved in the Lennox case....and possibly others. Any ideas?

Would it be the jurisdiction of the High Courts of England?

Victoria Stilwell is calling for an investigation, I'm not certain exactly how such an investigation would take place. I support it and want to live to see it happen.

Done. Thanks. Yes, I agree with Michelle, there should be an investigation on this. The whole thing was just so fishy.

Contact Channel 4 UK and let them know a video leaked today showing Lennox to be a playful, socialized, happy well-trained dog while being evaluated by a behaviorist in the presence of dog warden Sandra Lightfoot. I posted the story on the video tonight and sent a mass mail to all the friends on my list. Copy and paste the link to the video when you sent your letter to the Channel 4 news. It's pretty damning.

From Patrizia:

I have just been told that if we send emails requesting investigation INTO BCC that channel 4 will launch one if they get enough requests.

Sample letter, or create your own letter....
Dear sir, madam,

We, concerned people for all over the world, are asking you to please start an investigation into BCC regarding the Lennox case.
We strongly believe things have been covered up and the truth has not been told to the public.
We also believe that Lennox's dog warden, Alexandra Lightfoot, lied under oath, stating Lennox was the most dangerous dog she had ever met, while video tapes show Lennox licking her face and being submissive to her.
We know we can't bring Lennox back, but we do want to know what really happened in BCC and that the truth will come out.
Justice needs to be done and the truth needs to be told.
Therefor we plead you to investigate this case and bring out a news report.

For Lennox's sake, for all innocent dogs sake.

We thank you.

(your name and country)

Njoted, signed, tweeted, and shared. The cruelty that was done here is not just to Lennox but to his family particuarly the handicapped child. People who have such little compassion should not be in a position to set the standards of a community.

This must never happen again. Shame on them for their seizure of Lennox without provication and then their callousness in not allowing the family a final goodbye to their dog. The Belfast animal control office MUST be held accountable for their cruel and inhumane actions and be made an example of what NOT to do for other animal control agencies around the world. I hope members of the House of Commons publicly disgraces this agency.

Gladly signed, I wrote a book in my comment on the petition, guess I'm chatty today. But seriously, I don't know who would do such an investigation; I would think the the UK must do it, I don't think anyone in NI could be unbiased. I posted on the RSPCA FB page and asked if they were investigating the mistreatment of Lennox. I don't think they care. Nothing on their site like RIP Lennox, nothing. Pretty sad. Also, sent an email to channel 4. Still plan to send emails to McCarthy and the BCC complaint line but need to wait until I an annoyed about something.
